Wolfson is a natural home for postgraduate students at Cambridge. Founded by the University as a postgraduate College, we are a thriving community of scholars, two-thirds of whom are pursuing Master's and PhD degrees.
From our beginnings as University College in 1965 with just six PhD students, we recently celebrated our 50th anniversary as a thriving centre for teaching and learning. Wolfson was the first of the mixed Colleges to admit both women and men as students and Fellows. The first person to earn her PhD at Wolfson was Suzanne Cory from Melbourne, now a respected molecular biologist. Since her graduation in 1970, we have been the academic home to thousands of Master's and PhD students from all over the world, continuing the tradition of inclusivity and internationalism with which we began.
